This should keep you busy for awhile...

Alright, I've got some linkety goodness for you today.

This post on Kellie's blog made me laugh out loud.  I bet some of you moms will immediately relate!

And I agree wholeheartedly with Amber on the subject of this post. I have a date with my house on Tuesday when my kids start back to school. I also intend to sneak in some practice time on Guitar Hero, but that's another post entirely.

My friend, Lisa, has been creative lately.  Check out her latest project. I love it!

I had a great idea for a birthday gift I can make for Abbey's best little friend who is having a birthday soon.  I'm going to make a tooth fairy pillow like this one I had growing up.  I have everything I need on hand, including some cute fabric.  I might even try and change it up a little by making the pocket a heart shape. How's that for being resourceful and sticking to my no-spend plan?  

I finally updated my recipe blog with some new recipes.  I found a great recipe for beef stew, and I even decided to break the family code and share my Nana's cornbread recipe.  If you haven't tried this spaghetti soup, promise me you will!  It is amazing.  

When I read this post of Joanne's, I was compelled to go and dig out this piece that I bought years ago at an antique store in Camden, AR. My nana had a print in her kitchen with this saying on it and it was SO true! Everyone congregated in her kitchen.  I need to clean this up and re-frame it and hang it up because I love this piece.
If you've ever had questions about Google reader, then please read this very informative post of Angie's.  It explains everything you need to know about Google reader and blogging in general. Please (I beg you) pay careful attention to the part about editing your profile to include your email address.  I want so badly to reply to some of the comments you guys post on here, but I can't because your profile isn't linked to your email address.

And if you want to add me to your Google reader, here are the instructions.  My blog is problematic for some reason.

If you're still in a mood to laugh, read this post of Angie's too.  It's hilarious.

In case you were wondering, I haven't mustered up the courage to do this...yet.

Lovin' that you and Joanne have similar needlepoint pieces. Wonder where they came from originally?! That's what is so fun to me about finding things in flea markets and antique stores...just imagining all the stories behind all the treasures in there.

Spaghetti soup looks good....will have to give that a try!! Worried about all the veggies kids are veg-a-phobes. Wonder what I could do?!?!

Speaking of birthdays and homemade, my friend Nicky made Drew a card that was DARLING. I'll take a picture of it. Stay tuned.

Meredith, I didn't realize that you all had lived in Arkadelphia after college! Corey and I lived there for about 3 years maybe? We moved there about a year after graduating and getting married, and then moved away when Caylie...our oldest was 1 1/2. Corey's sister and her husband did live there for a while too, but moved to here 5 or 6 years ago. I don't remember the little boy that Christian made friends with at Corey's parents house. He lived next door, but I wasn't outside with them, and can't remember...I'll ask Christian tomorrow. Who do you know that goes to church with Corey's parents? They LOVE their church, and are very involved! Thanks for the link to the Google Reader tips. I just got it going...couldn't get your blog to come up when I typed it in though. :( Do you know why? It is the only one that wouldn't work...still getting the hang of all of this! :)

THANK you! I finally can "follow" your blog with all the others. (I still don't know what Google Reader is, but I know how to follow.)

Yay, I read this post... and with your help, I think I fixed my Reader to pick up your new posts!!!
